Scallop Fishery

The Tasmanian scallop fishery is managed under the provisions of the Living Marine Resources Management Act 1995 and Fisheries (Scallop) Rules 2011.
It is primarily based on the harvest of the commercial scallop. Although commercial fishers can legally take the doughboy scallop and the queen scallop, these species have only minor commercial significance in Tasmania.
